Fathers Day Interview

One of the hardest working people I know, my dad has always been a great example to me growing up. Working 7 days a week and even on Christmas, my dad loves what he does but I know he loves us much more and that’s why he does it. When I was little I remember him coming home and he’d be so exhausted from work, but we’d still manage to hangout with me. I remember watching “Wheel of Fortune” together a lot. Most of the time he’d fall asleep on the couch by the end of it.

He’d also be the one who to take me to see movies that were so not appropriate for my age like Die Hard and action movies like that were our favorites. And every Thanksgiving, while the turkey was cooking in the oven, we’d go see the latest James Bond movie in the movie theatre.

So when I asked him if I could interview him for a blog post, I was happy that he agreed. I pulled out a pen and paper and he said “oh, this is a real interview?” Of course it is!

What was I like as a child?
Very cute. (I asked him if that was it and I could tell that he thought more about it…) I remember buying you a piano and you didn’t play it. I sent you to ballet and you don’t dance. (never asking that question again)

What did you want me to be when I grew up?

To have a good education and to be a good lady.

What did you think when I said I wanted to become a photographer

*takes deep breath* I was worried about you having a steady income.

What do you think of my photography now?

So far so good. Still no one wants the piano.

Which image of mine is your favorite?

The one that is hanging in the basement. (I think he’s referring to this one because theres two).

Happy Fathers day to all the dads out there!
